Rossi's Italian Bakery Bakes From The Heart

By Elisha Neubauer

Doing what you love with someone you love makes work a journey, not a job. For Ted and Deborah Flanagan that's exactly what they have.

The Flanagans own Rossi's Italian Bakery, in York, Maine. The bakery was opened by the couple back in 2013 and was named after Ted's mother, Joan Rossi Flanagan, who also lived in the York area. The pair originally met while managing a bakery in Massachusetts. They hit it off immediately and then opted to launch their own bakery as a team.

"I started a part time job when I was 15 years old and found myself surrounded by a lot of talent which peeked my interest," Ted Flanagan said. "I worked, watched, and learned for 25 years then met my wife Debbie who shared the same interests. We have been complementing each other's skills for 17 years now."

The couple only use the finest and freshest ingredients to make their pastries, of which they refer to as an old school style of baking. Paired with their high standards, it makes for a delicious combination.

"The rest will surely take care of itself," Flanagan said.

The bakery offers a wide range of pastry specialties, full cakes, and wedding cakes and cupcakes, as well as a variety of gluten free options. Everything from chocolate mousse tarts and cream puffs to eclairs, tiramisu, and cheesecake are available within the cases lining the bakery. For those still in need of something a little more substantial before diving into the cakes and goodies, homemade pizza is available in a variety of flavors.

Tastings are available for those considering booking Rossi's for any wedding events. These last approximately 30 minutes and include a variety of cupcakes for you, your partner, and one guest.
